Kansas City Kansas Community College is expanding its motorcycle training courses to include a 3-Wheel Basic Rider Class (3WBRC) for people to learn to ride the Can-Am Spyder. After about 20 hours of training, riders will be ready to hit the open road in style.
The class is in collaboration with Can-Am, which is offsetting the majority of the fees – instead of the usual $250, the 3WBRC will cost $75.
KCKCC is celebrating its 20th year of motorcycle safety classes, making this the perfect time to introduce the Can-Am Spyder into the mix of top-notch programming and instructors.
“The Can-Am Spyder is perfect for people who want to enjoy the freedom of the open road with friends, whether that’s a beginner rider or an experienced motorcyclist looking to make a change,” said Bob Parkison, lead 3-wheel instructor at KCKCC.
3WBRC curriculum is a mix of classroom time with new Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) materials, as well as closed-course riding on Can-Am Spyder vehicles provided by Can-Am. Upon completion, riders receive a certificate to take to the DMV for a 3-wheel endorsement on their driver’s license. No further written or ride testing is required at the DMV.
Registration is open at https://can-am.brp.com/spyder/learntoride.html. Classes kick off this month and two classes will be held each month through October. The schedule is 6 to 10 p.m. Fridays, followed by 8 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Can-Am Spyder vehicles and helmets are provided. All courses are taught by 3WBRC Motorcycle Safety Foundation certified Rider Coaches. The 3WBRC is on the approved list of courses eligible for the Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention Course Discount at insurance companies.
